Hot lunch is provided daily in our air-conditioned cafeteria, as well as cold options, snacks and beverages.
Giants (3, 4 and 5-year-olds)
The Giants may be our youngest campers, but they have the biggest fun! The Giants are a co-ed group with complete use of our Early Childhood facility, the large playground, and the rest of campus. Certified teachers organize the day’s activities. It’s not a small world after all at Staten Island Academy Day Camp! (Please note: 5-year-olds who will be entering Grade 1 in September 2013 will be placed in the Juniors Division.)
Think your little one is not ready for a full day of camp?
We have the solution - our half-day program for Giants.
You can choose either the morning (9 AM – 12 PM) or
afternoon (1 PM – 4 PM) program. We provide lunch in the morning program and a snack in the afternoon. All campers will swim, have full use of our facilities and be supervised by our same experienced staff of certified teachers.
Juniors (Entering Grades 1 and 2)
Perhaps our liveliest group on campus, the Juniors are divided by gender, and keep a busy, jam-packed schedule. Look for them leading the pack on Scavenger Hunt Day or racking up the points during Olympic Week.
Intermediates (Entering Grades 3 and 4)
There is nothing “medium” about the Intermediates! This group is divided by gender and they are full speed ahead at all activities! They always seem to be at the front of any challenge, especially when candy is the prize!
Seniors (Entering Grades 5 and 6)
Energy and enthusiasm highlight this group. Senior Boys and Girls always bring their energy to the field every day and continue to shine as the leaders in the Camp Show! The highlight of being a Senior: TRIPS! of course.
Super Seniors (Entering Grades 7 and 8)
For Super Seniors, it’s “all of the above” plus a
second weekly trip off-Island. All Super Senior trips
and transportation costs are included in camp tuition.
Trips will only be guaranteed when a camper’s
application is received and paid in full two weeks prior
to the trip date. Don’t miss out on the adventure that is
the Super Senior experience.

Counselor in Training (Grades 9 thru 11)
The SIA Day Camp Counselor in Training Program (CIT) is an exciting opportunity for young people to learn in a “hands-on” environment how to become a qualified and experienced camp counselor. There are numerous skills involved in being a good role model. CIT training teaches the importance of sensitivity, leadership, communication and teamwork. Days at camp are challenging and fun as CITs work with experienced counselors in all camper age groups to experience real-life situations under professional supervision. CITs also step out of the daily routine for workshops and discussions that introduce them to the various methods and strategies necessary in the workplace. Upon completion of the program, CITs receive an evaluation, certificate of completion and a letter of recommendation useful for future job search and personal portfolios. Each session will also provide an off-Island excursion, where the group gets a chance to relax and have fun. The CIT program is a great experience for teenagers, often becoming the catalyst for them to become more motivated for future success.
Weekly Trips for
Seniors and Super Seniors
They probably have waited years to board the bus and head off to new found adventures! Seniors and Super
Seniors venture out once a week for trips like bowling, go-carts and ice skating! In addition, Super
Seniors take off-Island trips such as Dorney Park, Seaside Heights and new this year – Ripley’s Believe it or NOT! A signed permission slip and completed medical form MUST BE ON FILE for all campers prior to trip day. The final trip schedule will be available in April.
